I could sit and watch beauty tutorials all day – by that, I mean fashion styling tips, makeup tutorials, and hair tutorials. The fact that I watch hair tutorials doesn’t even make sense because I don’t have any hair! I have a really short pixie cut, so it’s not like the whole “milkmaid braids” applies to me. Nor can I do any “beachy waves.” So many of these videos don’t even apply to me that it’s ridiculous! So why do I like them so much?
I’m going to break down some of my favorite beauty tutorials and talk about why they’re SO addictive.
- Clip In Hair Extensions, How To Clip In Foxy Locks Extensions (Detailed) Blend – This video was actually uploaded in 2009, but is still pretty relevant because Foxy Locks extensions are so popular! Imogen (the face of Foxy Locks), shows us how to clip in the extensions, and the video has since sparked what probably amounts to thousands of reviews and tutorials using Foxy Locks extensions. What I love about Imogen is that she’s very straightforward in this video. No rambling, and not too much product promotion. Just a tutorial that works for basically any brand of hair extension. Even though I don’t have long hair, I did at one time, and I know how helpful extensions can be if you’re in one of those awkward “growing it out” phases, or if you just need a little more body.
- Cyber Gothic Anime – This video isn’t what you’d expect at all – it’s by Michelle Phan! Well, Michelle is known to branch out, but she always keeps it elegant! She’s also pretty funny. That’s what different about her. Michelle isn’t afraid to try fierce, edgy, or even strange looks – this isn’t her first anime tutorial! But she does always keep it classy and realistic, not unprofessional or scary. Definitely appreciated.
- 20 Ways To Transform A Piece of Fabric Into A Shirt, Skirt, & Dress – This is a really diverse tutorial by Chriselle. She’s an amazing fashion designer and has a lot of YouTube videos. This one is my favorite of hers; she shows you how to take one large piece of fabric and make a few simple adjustments (safety pins, skinny belt) to have twenty different garments. I’m a DIY girl so it’s easy to see why I like this one so much. (The editing is pretty cool, too.)
I think the main thing in all of these videos is the professional quality – but I also love inspiration! That’s probably the secret as to why tutorials are so addictive. You can make these styles work for you on your own terms. They just serve as inspiration!
